Facial Motion Capture Test
This is the first in a series of Facial Mocap tests , there are refinements to be made of course but not bad for a first attempt.The data we used was unprocessed and we learned lots about the process, you can read through our observations on our website www.wakinghourmovie.com

Work in progress, hand-made with Lightwave, Sculptris and Krita, composited with Davinci Resolve Lite. Music by me. http://www.chrisj.com.au --- Due to popular demand I'm attempting to extend the soundtrack, but it's not coming easily... so it could take a while. No scans, motion capture or photos were used (except for reference). First half rendered in ~800 hours on a 2008 vintage quad core. Additional rendering by GarageFarm. Thanks for all the comments!

"Old Man" with Actor - 3D Motion Capture Facial Animation
Pendulum Studios is the San Diego based 3D animation and digital fx studio specializing in high-end character animation and story-telling. Pendulum artists sculpt a number of facial "blend-shapes" for the character. These sculpted expressions can be realistic or exaggerated, allowing a digital character infinite stylistic possibilities, ranging from life like to cartoony. http://www.studiopendulum.com Mesh Scissoring with Minima Rule and Part Salience http://www.cs.tau.ac.il/~dcor/online_papers/papers/cagd05.pdf A fundamental hurdle in bringing digital actors to the screen is achieving realistic facial animation. With the most recent implementations of the Vicon motion-capture system, Los Angles based House of Moves is able to achieve an unparalleled level of precision in the capture of facial motion. Pendulums research into this area has resulted in the creation of a proprietary software application, called Alter Ego. Revelation 13: 14And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. 15And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. Effective resizing of images should not only use geometric constraints, but consider the image content as well. A simple image operator called seam carving supports content-aware image resizing for both reduction and expansion. A seam is an optimal path of pixels on a single image from top to bottom, or left to right, where optimality is defined by an image energy function. By repeatedly carving out or inserting seams in one direction one can change the aspect ratio of an image. By applying these operators in both directions we can retarget the image to a new size. The selection and order of seams protect the content of the image, as defined by the energy function. Seam carving can also be used for image content enhancement and object removal. Various visual saliency measures for defining the energy of an image can be supported, and can also include user input to guide the process. By storing the order of seams in an image we create multi-size images, that are able to continuously change in real time to fit a given size.
